This question was published in Dr. John's Q&A by John Morris in July 1995. There are a handful of questions in Dr. John's Q&A that Morris fails to answer. This is one of them. Morris in the first two sentences says the media treatment is poor, and then he uses the rest of the article to describe what he thought was a good broadcast about creationism on PBS in May 1995. He fails to give any examples of poor treatment to back up his claim that media treatment is poor.
If you look at Answers in Genesis, with the upcoming opening of their Creation Museum, they are actually getting a lot of good press from the media. Granted, they have had their share of bad press in the past, and still do, but currently the good outweighs the bad.
Of course, if organizations like ICR and AiG used real, valid science, and believed in an old earth, the media would be much better to them. But then again, they would not get the same attention that they get now. When you abuse science as bad as they do, you make an easy target.

If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
